Yo Kita (said in my most Bitchin’ Kitchen Nadia G voice) what’s up with the wonky post schedule this week?  Um, It’s Christmas, Fonz. I promise a normal week next week complete with New Years countdowns, resolutions and killer recipes. But for today, I just got done at the gym, my house is still a crazy hot mess, my cat has claimed my lap and my legs have gone past the tingly asleep stage to the omg you are going to fall on your face when you stand up and my dog has the most disgusting farts in the world.

Have you ever just wanted gooey-cheesy-clog-your-arteries kind of food? Of course you have. Why else would you be here? That’s what I wanted when I walked into the kitchen to make this weeks Soup Kitchen Monday creation.

I am in my 20’s and […]

Its Super Bowl Sunday and I know nothing about football. I know there’s a ball, a big green field and some running. That’s my knowledge of football. Yet, for the Super bowl, with all the hype, its easy and fun to get into it. It’s way more fun with other people. We’re having a few friends over and I am making some of the normal football foods – or at least that’s what the food network tells me. All of these ideas came from glancing over a food network recipe and taking it from there with what I had to […]
